This could also be why it is so hazy and appears smoky here. Earlier, I received a code red as informational only regarding it looking smoky, saying it was from the Durango fire. Just saw this about a new fire in summit county, a bit closer to our area. They said they evacuated two neighborhoods :(

If everyone prays/wishes/hopes/‘however you do it’ for rain all through Colorado, just maybe we will get some.

The winds are strong so the fire will grow quickly and move quickly towards I-70. Smoke is already drifting over the interstate. If the fire gets close enough it might have to be closed. Stay tuned to @DenverChannel for the latest updates!

Thanks for the link, mtn60. Do you know how many residents were evacuated?

News media this morning reporting 1400 homes evacuated which means probably more than 2000 people.

Everyone probably knows this, but the fire is now contained :) Hopefully we can stay that way for the rest of the summer.
